COBR meeting

When asked about today’s COBR meeting on ISIL, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesperson (PMOS) said officials had updated the Prime Minister on the latest situation and that the Prime Minister had reiterated his condemnation of Mr Kassig’s murder.


When asked about the murder of 4 people in Jerusalem, the PMOS said the Prime Minister was appalled by the horrific attack.

GP surgeries

When asked about the Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) GP surgery data, the PMOS said this was very much part of the agenda the government had been taking forward in terms of ensuring that we had the highest possible standards in all parts of the NHS. The CQC had been reformed under this government precisely in order to be able to undertake a more thorough and extensive inspection regime across all parts of the NHS, the PMOS added.
